If i were to send my new valves/seal/springs etc all standard size would you install them along with the service? Or do you need the heads sent to you bare?

We can install the valve train, but you would have to pay for the assembly. The $400 price is assuming we receive and ship out completely bare castings.

Thanks

This would seem like the perfect use for a PM.

Taking a deposit, some pictures of my heads I'd be sending as a core etc... YYou don't know until you try

Any chance of you guys doing a CNC program for less cc's volume, maybe like the shape of the 06'-07' wrx chambers? That way it would match the 2.5 bore and not be quite so much volume.

I don't know if it would be possible, but that would allow the De-stroker guys a way to get their compression up a bit more with the shelf pistons available.

Just another option to offer your customers.

Its something we may consider in the future, but a lot of time went into creating the current CNC program and I doubt my machine shop is going to want to go through it again any time soon .

Why would their be a difference in volume between the 06-07 WRX chambers and the STI?

Yep, the 06-07 WRX has a different combustion chamber and piston design which overall raises the compression a bit. We actually worked with CP to develop an EJ255 specific piston to use in WRX's.

Thanks

I read a few pages back about people getting specific JE pistons for their hybrid setup, now if I send my heads in to get the CNC work done, will I require different pistons or off the shelf weisco's/cp's/etc will work without any issues?

With the CNC work, you want to just get standard off the shelf pistons designed for an EJ257.

Thanks

How much would it cost for this service and also a p&P of the heads?

It depends on the P&P you want. A bowl blend is $250 and will get you a large percentage of the gains of a full P&P. The complete P&P with gasket matching is $1000.

Thanks

Yes, we can line hone heads, but usually don't like to do it if there's significant damage. The problem is that you end up with a bit of a squish on the cam seals if you have to take off too much.
